Question about Samsung Refrigerators
It just started happening.. Its only about 1 yr old. We turned down water pressure still makes that sound. any idea's
The water dispensing solenoid valve, located on the back of unit where the hose water supply tube attaches to your unit may be bad or the wiring to that valve may be loose. If wiring connection seems to be okay, problem is probably the solenoid valve.

the compressor has a loose or broken spring inside the compressor, unfortunatly it can not be repaired without replacing the compressor, it could last many more years and it could quit as we speak.
best thing is to let the neighbor know of the problem and what is the repair that way they won't think you are ponning off the machine to them, it may outlast your new one, time will tell

Now that the hinge mechanism is lubricated with no result it is presumed that the popping sound is because of the escape of compressed air from inside the refrigerator. so nothing to worry about so far it is maintaining its cool temperature inside.

is it shutting off when it makes that clunking noise? if so, thats the compressor making the noise. the motor inside the shell casing, which is suspended on four springs, is banging agasint the shell casing because one of those springs has stretched or broken. You need to replace compressor. if its been happening for a while, i would start looking for a new model. if its more recent, and not very loud, you haver more time, but in either case, it could just cease up at any time. to hgave your compressor replaced, and unless your an HVAC tech you should most assuredly NOT do it yourself, its quite expensive, at or near the cost of buying a new one.

Testimonial: "Thanks. It made me cancel my appt. for service that was going to cost me $86.00--even if he did nothing. I'll put the money towards a new fridge."
A good guess is the fan in the freezer is coming in contact with something. Most likely ice buildup which indicates a failure in the defrost section. If the noise is coming from the freezer side, just behind the food this is almost a for sure thing. It may just be going out as well, which is good because then you wouldn't have a problem with the defrost section :)
If the noise is coming from the back of the refrigerator at the bottom, what we have there is a compressor and a fan that keeps the compressor cool (called a condenser fan). If it's the condenser fan, it probably just needs to be replaced, and or adjusted from whatever it is coming in contact with. If it's the compressor, lets hope it's just rattling and can be tightened down. If it is something inside the compressor you will have to live with the noise or replace the compressor. The sad part is, replacing a compressor is generally not cost effective, at which point you buy a new refrigerator.
These are really the only three things that can make that type of noise. I hope I was of some help. If i can clear anything else up or answer anymore questions please let me know! good luck!

It could be that the cooling area is being restricted by something. Remove the front panel and take a look to make sure everything looks ok. You should have a warranty and I would sure use that before you have more problems...
